politics. job hunt jon -- jon huntsman and his campaign manager parting ways today. and then of course you have the vice presidential nomination. they want chris christie to run for president, but he will not, hint, hint, pick him for vice president. and mark rubio announcing as if we have been waiting for it that he will make his first out of his home state speech as a senator next month at the reagan library in california. is that a thing? the new awkwardness of course with how fast things are changing in washington is that marko rubio has said as recently as this past weekend he probably will not vote to raise the debt ceiling. in march, he wrote an op-ed entitled why i won't raise the debt ceiling, and that will be awkward to take to the ronald reagan liberal as statements are being circulated from reagan that if you do not vote to raise it you are all but a traitor. and then there's bob mcdonald. bob mcdonald has had a wobbly takeoff as a national republican figure. just days after he was inaugurated as virginia's governor, the republican national party put him fourth as their face of

,000,000.20000000 dollars, the next four candidates according to these figures, tim pawlenty, ron paul, jon pawlenty, ron paul, jon huntsman, that does not even add up to 15 million. it is still seen as a slow money raising cycle? guest: because mitt romney had done the things that were necessary to get off to a fast start. relative to the rest of the field, however, when you look at this point in the 2008 cycle, mitt romney raised more than $20 million. rudy giuliani, $17 million. john mccain, the eventual nominee, $11 million. three big guns out front, competing against an open democratic field, we did not know that president obama's fund-raising operation would be the juggernaut that it turned out to be. at that point, with an unknown opponent, there was more fund- raising by individual candidates and folks using the gop nomination than we see at this point in a comparable cycle where we do know who the opponent is going to be. they know that money will be important and yet the numbers are substantially behind. it is disappointing. it has to be a letdown for the republican field. host: kenneth vogel w
that to happen. >> with that let me bring in our team. jake tapper, jon karl on capitol hill. jon, given the deadlock, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says he doesn't think a deal can be reached so calm up with a last-ditch fallback. >> reporter: last choice option, only if the talks completely collapse. it's complicated but the bottom line is, it would give the president the authority on his own to gradually raise that debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion between now and the election. the political burden is all the president's. he can do it without spending cuts and even in the face of opposition from the majority in congress. i talked to a lot of republicans in the house, rank and file, who say it's not acceptable. they want real spending cut, a lot of them and nothing else. >> there's no guarantee of spending cuts even though it would avoid tax increases. any openness in the white house to that and where do they think the talks are right now? are they as pessimistic as mr. mcconnell? >> reporter: well, mcconnell's deal sent two signals to the white house, one, good news to them

ideas that could lead to a compromise. >> jon kyl was in negotiations, as you know, with the vice president, and he said there were certain revenue raisers and other areas that perhaps we could work on. >> some democrats have also suggested that even without a deal the president can keep spending. they're citing the 14th amendment that says the debt of the federal government "shall not be questioned." >>> we're following several big stories in the week ahead. on wednesday a grand jury is set to hear new charges against the bus driver behind the wheel in a deadly crash on i-95 near king's dominion in may. charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter for the four passengers who died. each charge carries up to ten years in prison. >>> president obama's taking to the virtual world to talk about the economy and the job market. the president will hold his first ever twitter town hall this wednesday. the white house made the announcement last week. people can submit questions using the hash tag "askobama." one word. the commander in chief held a similar event on facebook earlier
